Sex & Nudity

  • The film shows a fair amount of both casual and erotic nudity. Full male and female frontal nudity in several different scenes. There are several explicit, realistic sex scenes and sexual references beginning with the opening frame.
  • Each of the two young men are shown having sex with their girlfriends at full length with no covers. Female breasts, female genitalia, and naked buttocks are shown in both. In both situations the two young people are seen having sex, full frontal nudity, thrusting, moaning, etc.
  • Two young men masturbate together on two separate diving boards - the shot is from a bit of a distance, but it is clear what they are doing. As they orgasm, semen is then seen falling into the pool in a shot taken underwater.
  • Two young men rough-house in the public showers - at one point they take their towels off and are naked as they snap the towels. Full frontal nudity is seen.
  • Each of two young men have sex with the same woman. One of the scenes includes both fellatio and cunnilingus as well as intercourse. The female character leaves her bra on during the scene. We see his bare buttocks. The other scene is in a car, so most of the bodies are hidden behind the car door, though thrusting is shown. The woman's bare breasts are seen briefly as the man suckles on them.
  • A woman performs oral sex on two young men together in a public place while the two men kiss each other. We see the woman completely nude as the men undress her. The two young men awaken naked in the same bed the next morning. Brief male nudity is shown in the first instance - the boys take off their shirts, but no frontal nudity is shown in this scene. In the second scene, they hop out of bed naked but dress quickly.
  • Two young men go skinny-dipping in a motel pool; they are filmed underwater with full frontal nudity seen.
  • In a scene at a party near the beginning of the film, there is a brief depiction of a three-way that involves oral sex.
  • There is casual, but explicit and frank discussion about sex throughout the film - who had sex with whom, how to please a woman, masturbation, oral sex, anal sex, cunnilingus, penetration, etc.
  • A woman is show sitting on the beach topless in a couple of shots.
  • The female lead is shown in a bikini, wearing a sarong with a bikini top, topless, or in her bra/panties in several scenes.
  • The two "girlfriends" are shown in their underwear or getting dressed several times with nudity seen.

Violence & Gore

  • Julio pushes Luisa while angrily trying to get to Tenoch. This scene also includes a lot of yelling and a little threatening of violence, but little other actual violence.
  • A dead body is seen on the side of the road with some blood. The body is covered with a sheet and the blood is on the road.
  • One man pushes another in a scene, but no further violence ensues.

Profanity

  • Strong profanities are used throughout the film. Several scenes involve explicit discussion of sexual intercourse and activities. The characters discuss anal sex, oral sex, cunnilingus, masturbation, etc. in great detail.
  • The word "fuck" is used 57 times (many times with a sexual connotation).
  • "Shit" is used frequently.
  • "Puto" is used as an insult toward straight men, but never toward their gay friend.
  • Other moderate profanities are used throughout the film.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Some scenes show both teens and adults drinking alcohol and smoking both tobacco and marijuana.
  • At a party three young men drink, smoke cigarettes and marijuana, and take ecstasy.
  • A young man is shown smoking marijuana while driving a car.
  • There is at least one scene of drunkenness followed by severe hangovers the next morning.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film was originally given an NC-17 rating. It is an extremely sexual (though not pornographic) and thought-provoking film that deals with several heavy thematic elements.

Spoilers

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Unknown to the young men who accompany her, Luisa (Maribel Verdu) is dying of cancer. This is a depressing film. EXCEPTION SHOULD BE TAKEN FOR THE VERY SUBJECTIVE & DISMISSIVE LABELING OF THE FILM AS "DEPRESSING". ON THE CONTRARY, IT IS AN ENORMOUSLY MOVING AND INSPIRING CELEBRATION OF LIVE & LOVE. WHETHER OR NOT A FILM "DEPRESSED" THIS CONTRIBUTOR HAS NO RELEVANCE TO THE CONTENT ADVISORY FEATURE
